Paternal Smoking Can Affect Multiple Generations of Descendants

A major finding from our study is that the effects of paternal nicotine exposure are transmitted to descendants via epigenetic modification of spermatozoal the DNA by nicotine. Future research could examine how nicotine produces these epigenetic changes
